Realtime Worlds' creative director Dave Jones kicked off Newcastle, UK's Game Horizon conference with a look back at the influences behind the formation of the Dundee development studio -- and the challenges involved in creating highly anticipated online shooter All Points Bulletin (APB).
He said Dark Age of Camelot was the game that "stirred his emotions" to realize the potential of persistent online games in terms of creating new experiences for players.
"It was something I wasn't expecting. Like drinking a fine wine for the first time," recalled Jones. He's currently putting the finishing touches to APB, which is due in early 2010.
